Danny: "Best fans in Scotland"

13th June 2014

Danny Wilson praises the Hearts support for their continued backing as season tickets go on sale.

Hearts captain Danny Wilson insists the Jambos support is "some of the best in the country" and believes they'll continue to back the men in maroon in huge numbers.

The Tynecastle skipper revealed that the players are fully appreciative of the phenomenal backing they've received over the past 12 months and he wants to help get the club back into the upper echelons of Scottish football as soon as possible.

Speaking to HeartsTV at the launch of 2014-15 season tickets, Danny said: "I'm sure the fans will back us. We don't take it for granted but we do know that we have some of the best fans in the country.

"We won't take that for granted. Home and away last year they backed us and hopefully they'll do the same next year.

"I think revival probably is the appropriate word to use. If you look at the fact that the fans stood by us last season, it was important for them that we came out of administration and gave them something to look forward to.

"They've been great all along and I think revival is the right word, considering the fact that it's going to be a tough league next year. It's not a league that a club like Hearts should be playing in so the quicker we get back to the top of Scottish football the better."

The club exited administration earlier in the week and Danny believes everyone can now focus on football and not off-field matters.

"It took a long time but it's more than worth it now," he said. "A lot of changes are happening at the club and that wee bit of news that we've come out of administration and being able to add to the squad that we've got can only be great going forward.

"We now don't have the points penalties and a transfer embargo hanging over us anymore. It's all about the football now and we can focus on it.

"Hopefully the Head Coach can now bring in some new players and we can really push on for next season in what's going to be a really tough league."
